Mallory Jones is tired of being the girl who stays home and practices French horn while her identical twin, Blake, is crowned homecoming queen. So when she has the opportunity to pretend to be Blake, she takes it. At Camp Pine Ridge, she will spread her wings and emerge a butterfly. Or at least someone who finally gets kissed by a cute guy. That is, until bad boy Ben Iron Cloud shows up, ready to get revenge on Blake—aka Mallory.

If it weren’t for that infuriating girl, Ben wouldn’t even be at camp. Luckily, he now has six weeks to soak up some rays and get even with his nemesis. But the more time he spends with Blake, the more he realizes she’s nothing like the girl he thought she was—she’s kind and innocent and suddenly way too tempting. And soon enough, revenge is the last thing on his mind. Unfortunately, the girl he’s falling for is keeping a major secret…

Disclaimer: This book contains a super-hot bad boy out for revenge, all sorts of camp hijinks, and a girl who realized she’s been a butterfly all along.

Absolutely loved this book! It had everything I like rolled into one beautiful little parcel. Breaking the Rules of Revenge is definitely going on my favourite shelf.

Mallory Jones is an identical twin. She is the quiet, head in a book twin, while her twin is an extrovert. Blake is loud, over confide ...more

I grew up on the Sweet Valley Twins books and loved them so much. This book had all the fun of the Wakefield twins, but a bit edgier. Mallory was such a relatable character. She's just your normal awkward bookworm teen, only she has to deal with Blake, her uber-popular identical twin sister, who see ...more

***I received an ARC through Netgalley in Exchange for an Honest Review***

I gave this book 4 stars. It was fun and diabolical, I loved every moment of it. I'm a sucker for anything with revenge and fake personas. There's always the reveal moment to look forward to. While it is a bit predictable, it ...more

By Olivia August 25, 2017

"Breaking the Rules of Revenge" is a YA contemporary that seems to be "The Parent Trap" meets "Dirty Dancing" meets "Mean Girls." Mallory is tired of being the invisible and boring twin in the shadow of the outgoing and glamorous Blake. However, when Blake landed herself in a lot of trouble with her ...more

By Gata Leitora / Cat reader September 01, 2017

Mallory and Blake are identical twins, but the similarities stop there, because they could not be more different from each other. Blake is the popular girl who gets everything she wants and Mallory is the invisible girl who has spent her entire life in the shadow of her sister.

Contemporary is my favourite! And this book has my heart. The author did mention 'Parent Trap' a few times and yes, it is kind of having that in this book except the twins know each other and live with their father. But Breaking the Rules of Revenge is not about their parents. The light is shining o ...more

By Jackie September 06, 2017

I've been on a big contemporary kick lately and have probably read just about every topic - okay, not EVERY topic - but I have to admit that this is the first one that I read about twins. I'd like to say that it's sort of Parent Trap-esque but the only similarity there is twins and the story taking ...more

Very fun read that I thoroughly enjoyed! The story was very well done and had me laughing and smiling all the way through.

A set of twins, one a good girl and one a bit wilder. When Blake finds herself in trouble, again, and doomed to summer camp she convinces her twin Mallory to go in her place. Be ...more

A sweet summer romance, with some laugh out loud lines and a terrific Cinderella story. Wallflower Mallory is so outshone by her glam-doll twin Blake that some kids at her school don't even know she exists. When Blake is sentenced to summer camp after a prank goes wrong, she pressures Mallory to tak ...more

By Jessica August 31, 2017

Mallory often wonders what it would be like to be more like her popular sister Blake. She gets the chance to find out when Blake talks her into going to a summer camp for her. What Mallory does not count on is running into Blake's nemesis Ben Iron Cloud. She's not expecting the revenge that Ben is r ...more

By Kendal September 10, 2017

I have a soft spot for books about twins swapping places, and this one was wonderful. I didn't like that Mallory kept her real identity from Ben for so long, but other than that, I loved the book. The only reason I gave this a 4 star was several times the other characters called Mallory by her name ...more

By Tami August 19, 2017


This was a YA romance. Her twin sister was a huge drama queen, and yet our geek of a heroine thought it would be a good idea to pretend to be her. It was a very sweet summer camp romance.

By Kat December 28, 2017

Confession, I'm not usually one for camp stories, but this little tale of love and revenge amidst some mistaken identify had me laughing all the way to the last page.

I really like a lot about this book. The kid in me whose favorite movie was The Parent Trap loved the storyline of twins trading places.

Mallory is the unpopular twin who fades into the sidelines while her sister Blake is the show stopper. When Blake pulls another prank involving Ben (who has caught Mallory's eye) Blake is sent to camp as part of her punishment, but in a great summer swapping roles story, Mallory goes in her place.

A very well written and enjoyable YA read. Bohrman's smart and humorous writing made it hard for me to put this book down. Wonderful (and some not so wonderful) characters try to work things out at a summer camp. Twins who change places and it works. For a while. I recommend it! ...more

By Tia September 14, 2017

Breaking the Rules of Revenge is your typical Parent Trap story. Twin sisters Mallory and Blake trade places when Blake is sentenced to summer camp rather than prison for her most recent prank. All Blake has to do is pass math for Mallory and Mallory will spend her summer doing arts and crafts and g ...more
